Review: Dragonair G16 Lounge Hong Kong Airport (HKG)

After the Qantas Hong Kong Lounge, my next stop was the Dragonair G16 lounge, which is right beside the Qantas lounge. I would not stop here unless you’re playing HKG airport lounge bingo, as there aren’t many redeeming qualities of this lounge, particularly with the Qantas lounge right next door. In fact, when I entered this lounge, the lounge dragon was somewhat surprised to see me and strongly suggested (in the nicest way possible) that I go to a different lounge.

This lounge does have a lot of seating. There are lots and lots of seats that they cram into the space. Like the Qantas lounge, it’s also open to the rest of the terminal, so it has a spacious feel.

The lounge also has a noodle bar. I’ve always thought that Cathay’s noodle bars aren’t quite as good as I want them to be, but a made-to-order food option is always a welcome sight in a lounge. Especially considering the sad state of the other food options in this lounge.

Another notable quality of this lounge is the private workstations. While there are some computers in the general seating area, there are a number of individual cubbies where you can have a bit of privacy if you’re looking to get work done.

Overall, I’m not sure why you would go to this lounge when there’s a significantly better lounge right beside it with the same lounge access rules. If you want a quiet place to work or you really want a bowl of noodles, you might stop by, but honestly, just go to the Qantas lounge.

    Why does this lounge even exist? Wouldn’t anyone flying business/OW elite on Dragon have access to the Cathay lounges? Seems odd to even have a branded Dragon lounge.

    Agreed, this lounge is quite sad and pointless, but the work cubes are decent if for nothing else than the privacy. Other thing I would note is that this lounge is the only one with self-serve alcohol (limited as it may be), if that is of importance to you.
